Good morning everybody. This is my first WOYWW post for several weeks. It's been one of those times when everything seems to happen on a Wednesday! still here I am to share my rather untiy craft space with you. Why? because Julia over at her Stamping Ground blog has been hosting this weekly opportunity to browse each others craft space and get inspired by what you see. Hop over there and get involved, it's great fun and pretty addictive. My table is just as I left it when I went off to cook the tea yesterday. I'd been having a go at the Tim Holtz tag for April, so there's Distress ink and paint every where, but mostly on the still uncleaned craft mat. I kept mopping it up with tags as I went along and have ended up with several useful but a bit dark background. Anyway one of the most interesting things on my table is a little jar with a massive dead bumble bee in it which I found in my garden. It's in perfect condition so I'm not sure why it died. I'm thinking of setting it in resin for posterity. Any way have a browse around 'cause I'm now off to the day job x
Ever since I can remember, I have enjoyed dabbling with a variety of crafts. My earliest crafting memories are of spending hours doing 'corking' or 'french Knitting' at my grandmother's house, using a wooden cotton reel with four short nails tapped into it and endless tangles of coloured wool. I also have fond memories of those little knitting kits, that came in a container that was made of the same material as an egg box. Happy days!
My interests now, range from textiles to ceramics, with knitting,felting, sewing and card making in between. I've reached a stage where I feel I know a little about a lot of different crafts. I'm still striving to become a master of at least one!
My favourite craft adventures at the moment, include digital collaging using PSP Elements, rubber stamp making with my imagpac kit and getting to know my Craft Robo.
When not crafting or looking after my family, I work part-time as a teacher, supporting visually impaired children.I also teach ceramics in a primary school and do occasional art residencies in mainly primary and special schools. Phew! I didn't realise I was that busy.
